, and there is an active search going on at this time. >> reporter: police shot tamerlan tsarnaev. he was pronounced dead a short time later at an area hospital. >> this was a trauma arrest. multiple injuries, probably we believe a combination of blasts, potentially gunshot wounds. >> how many gunshot wounds? >> unable to count. >> multiple gunshots? >> yes. >> i'm sorry i didn't hear the rest of that. >> and probably a blast injury also. >> blast meaning what? >> an explosive device, possibly shrapnel, a thermal injury. >> can you describe where it was? >> it was pretty much throughout the trunk, it was multiple wounds. >> would it be consistent with perhaps a bomb strapped to the chest, would it be consistent with that? >> unclear. i think the medical examiner will be able to conclusively say that, but there were signs of more than just gunshot wounds. >> reporter: the brothers were of chechen heritage and came to the u.s. around ten years ago. a circuitous path took them through dagestan, a volatile region in southern russia. 26-year-old tamerlan reportedly was a hip-hop fan, and a

that he and his older brother tamerlan planted pressure cooker bombs near the finishline for the boston marathon. tamerlan later died after a shootout with police. in providence, rhode island, lawyers for tamerlan tsarnaev's wife catherine said she had been unaware of the bombing plot. >> the reports of involvement by her husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all. as a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, katie deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims, students, law enforcement officers, families and our community. in the aftermath of this tragedy she, her daughter and her family are trying to come to terms with this event. >> woodruff: meanwhile, both the "washington post" and the "new york times" have reported that the younger tsarnaev admitted his role in the attack. the "post" also reported he told investigators that u.s. involvement in the iraq and ghanisn warwere mtivati factors. other accounts said there appeared to be no links to larger terrorist groups. in russia today, their mother said f.b.i. agents talked to her about tamerlan tsarna

said it. >> brown: there were also questions about the f.b.i.'s investigation last year of tamerlan tsarnaev, after he spent six months in russia. senator diane feinstein, chairing the intelligence committee, said senior f.b.i. may testify tomorrow about why they did not pursue the matter further. i misspoke in that set-up piece. tsarnaev was read his miranda rights in his hospital room today. we're joined by a reporter who has been following developments closely. dina temple raston is npr as anti-terrorism correspondent. welcome to you. do we know how much or what investigators are learning from tsarnaev in the hospital so far? >> well, there's been very little that they've learnd because he can't really understand that he can't speak. he has a tube in his throat. he has some sort of a wound on his neck and his hand. apparently to his jaw. there's some question as to whether or not it was a self-inflicted wound. so as a result apparently they're writing notes back and forth. it's unclear if those notes are ra port building so he learns to trust these people who are trying to questi

years ago. his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, died after a firefight with police friday morning. he was worn in russia and became a legal resident in 2007. the prayer -- the brothers are believed to have entered the country 10 years ago. the associated press spoke to the father. he said i son is an angel. he said he is an intelligent boy. confirms the worst fears of those responsible for national security. there are enemies among us. >> i agree. a moreard to imagine more american place to hit in this vicious and cowardly act. i think the political implications of it are immediate. there will be a great resistance to immigration reform. i think it is a blow there. beyond that, it is a reminder that since september 11, there has not been a terrorist attack in this country organized from abroad by foreign nationals. this may be a break. >> all right. we have a long way to go on what the motivation was and whether there is an international connection. we are getting better at solving these things. unfortunately, this is a case of not preventing them. in a democratic society, you can't preve

except for that the parents say that the older brother, tamerlan, stayed with them in dagestan, in the capital city and the father claims-- although the father and mother seem wounded and deluded to say the least about their sons' activities-- say that he was with them almost all the time and that he visited some relatives in chechnya as well. who he was seeing, what he was doing, we're not clear in a minute-by-minute basis. he was going to the mosque, there's nothing ostensibly wrong with that, anybody going church or synagogue. so what law enforcement authorities, what intelligence authorities in russia and the united states are going to have to figure out what s what those movements there as well as here. >> rose: and was there some noticeable change after that? >> when he came back? >> rose: yes. in terms of what they tweeted or anything else. >> i think the intensity of it increased. certainlin the last year, for example, the twitter feed of the younger brother dzhokhar becomes -- again, this is all in the rear-view mirror. this is all applying what we know or we believe to have h

they're t terribly concerned if theye caught or killed. i think if you look at tamerlan, the older brother, throwing a bomb and charging at a heavily armed group of police in a fire fight, he was not afraid to die and that that may have been actually part of his plan in that moment. so i think you're dealing with someone who's very dangerous. >> rose: we continue with the conversation with two people who are experts on the digital revolution. they are walt mossberg and kara swisher. >> everything is moving in mobile. if you ask compaes lean social network, e-commerce companies, many of them appeared at the conference. the percentage of people doing their readings, transactions, checking with their friends on mobile versus p.c.s or macs is just soaring and i think that's the fundamental underlying headline of everything. >> if you don't have a mobile strategy, a co-hent mobile strategy that makes money you're in trouble. so facebook ran into trouble because people felt they didn't have a mobile strategy then you saw this incredibly aggssive efrt to ueilome, which is their new mobile

intelligence failure in the run-up to the attacks. tamerlan tsarnaev the older of t two bomrs was interviewed by the fbi in 2011 after a tippoff from russian intelligence. after that it seems he disappeared from the fbi's radar. this was in spite of a six month trip to chechnya and dagestan and uploading jihadist materials on youtube. earlier today the fbi briefed the house and senate committee on what they knew of him. joining me now from washington philip mudd, former deputy director of the cia counterterrorist center, also a deputy director of the fbi national security branch. his new book is called takedown inside the hunt for al qaeda. i'm plsed, reaypleased toave hihe on this program. welcome. >> thank you. >> rose: so tell me what your take is on this-- on them, the two brothers. on what they did, where they came from, whether there is some election with-- link with people in chechnya that might have had some influence on them. what is the mudd appraisal of this? >> my first a operational is these two kids, i take the younger kid's word not because of what he says but becau
